Jizzy Pearl
Crucified - EP
Style: Hard Rock
Release date: 13 January, 2014
Playing time: 22:32

The newly-appointed Quiet Riot frontman Jizzy Pearl (ex LA Guns, Ratt, Adler's Appetite) had to rename this release in the last minute, just to draw a thick line under ongoing problems with signature band Love/Hate. I had to rename everything in this review from Love/Hate to Jizzy Pearl. Very confusing...

Originally slated as a clean Love/Hate release, any mention of the US rockers has been scrubbed from the new EP 'Crucified'. In addition Pearl will now undertake next spring’s UK tour as Jizzy Pearl’s Love/Hate!

Let's concentrate on the music instead. Six rock 'n' roll tracks are packed on this EP. Nothing thrilling or any hefty surprise. Very straight forward hard rock in a semi-punk rock tempo on the first half of the disc. The three initial songs have a quite cheeky attitude and Jizzy sings with a rasping rock voice that fits this dusty rock 'n' roll music. I got stoked about the lovely acoustic song 'I Don't Want To Be Your Baby' and the slow, bluesy song 'Too Late', which are the only tracks that rescues this EP from my axe.

My overall rating stays at the low OK level, nothing more...
